God’s Little Explorers Week 19
- Theme: ”l” is for Love
- Bible Story: The Good Samaritan
- Bible Verse: “He answered: Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength, and with all your mind; and love your neighbor as yourself.” Luke 10:27
- Letter: l
- Color: Yellow
Here are a few activities we did this week:
We painted some Simple Heart Art to remind us of God’s love (and to share with family).
We talked about different ways we can show love to others and made a heart chain to hang on the wall to remind us!
After we read about the Good Samaritan, we put a band-aid on one of my daughter’s dolls to help us remember the story. We also had fun acting out the story!
I made this simple number match game (H colored the hearts). To play, just match the correct numeral with the correct number of hearts. You can also adapt this to make it more difficult and play it like “Memory” by turning the pieces over and drawing two at a time until you make a match. Printing this on cardstock is preferable.
We attempted to make some fingerprint hearts for our “l” printable (included in the download) with an inkpad and our thumbs.
My youngest also practiced writing the lowercase l in her alphabet journal.
My middle daughter colored and cut-out the printable Bible verse hearts. Then, we hid them for my youngest. She found them, and we helped her put together the verse in order!
Finally, I taught the girls the hand gesture for “I love you” in sign language. I traced their hand and folded down two fingers to make the sign. They glued it onto a piece of cardstock and made a Valentine for dad!
